Since I moved out to a new house I do not have internet, so I use my network monthly bundles, and I did not have the problem I am going to explain before.
First of all I charged my bundle to do some work and I noticed after 30 min from recharging it and sitting on my computer using my mobile as hotspot, 50% of my monthly bundle is used which is about 3,5 gb used in just 30min which should have stayed with me for 2 weeks.
I tried to check what is using it but cant find an answer, also I have utorrent installed so I suppose it is a malware.
I have tried running many scans using, malwarebyte, Iexplorer, tpskiller, zemana, adwcleaner and nothing was fetched.
Also I completely wipe my laptop and installed a new version of windows 8.1
Also when I open my hotspot in the first sec 8mb consumed, so I cannot let my pc online.
Hope this gives enough info about my problem

If you are watching videos then data is chewed up quickly.

 

To conserve all possible data I would stop windows update service.

Use Ad blocking DNS server.

Also Use Ublock Origin.

Also add this to it.

And there is also this.

Last time I connected it to the internet it took away 1,5gb in 30min which was 50% of my bandwidth.
